The more I play around with PowerShell, the more I like it. I always find new things to explore with cmdlet. Windows PowerShell is an object-oriented automation engine and scripting language with an interactive command-line shell designed to help IT professionals configure systems and automate administrative tasks. You can find it in every modern Windows OS starting with Windows 2008R2. Learning Windows PowerShell is like learning to use a universal multi-tool. In this post, I cover PowerShell scripting basics so you can more easily perform virtually any administration task related to your Windows IT environment.
PowerShell is a task-based command-line shell and scripting language built on .NET. PowerShell helps system administrators and power-users rapidly automate tasks that manage operating systems (Linux, macOS, and Windows) and processes. PowerShell commands let you manage computers from the command line. PowerShell providers let you access data stores, such as the registry and certificate store, as easily as you access the file system. PowerShell includes a rich expression parser and a fully developed scripting language.
